Job Description

About Sanctus

Since 2016, Sanctus has been partnering with businesses to provide high quality, 1:1 personal coaching to their employees.

Sanctus started as a community which rallied around a simple mission: normalise the conversation around mental health in the workplace and make proactive support more readily available at work.

Over the last five years we’ve built up a community we’re proud of and partnered with hundreds of progressive organisations. Together, we’ve played an important role in shifting outdated narratives around mental health in the workplace, and empowered tens of thousands of people to work on their mental health & wellbeing with a Sanctus Coach.

Our customers are our partners and we’re proud to work with start-ups like The Body Coach, Peakon & Onfido, agencies like Dentsu, Carat & Vayner Media and Global Brands like Red Bull, JustEatTakeAway and the Boston Consulting Group.

We know the impact that Sanctus Coaching has on both individuals and organisations and over the next 5 years our ambition is for 10’000’s more people to have access to Sanctus at work, whilst we continue to champion healthier workplaces and support businesses to move beyond lip service when it comes to prioritising employee wellbeing.
